Multimodal Transport Data Exchange, Digital Transport Corridors, and Trade Facilitation

23 April

Dear Colleagues,


The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), in collaboration with its partners from the Ukraine, is organizing the tenth jubilee Odessa seminar on trade facilitation “Multimodal Transport Data Exchange, Digital Transport Corridors, and Trade Facilitation”. The seminar will be conducted online on 27-29 April 2020. The seminar will focus on data exchange in multimodal transport based on international standards, so that the aligned data could be seamlessly transmitted and re-used within the Port Community Systems, Single Window systems and along multimodal corridors.


The Programme will cover discussions of the following themes:


  1. Data sharing between documents of different modes of transport:       
    • developments after the seminar on 28 May 2019 on data sharing between multiple modes of transport based on common standards, and
    • electronic data exchange on railway transport and integration with other modes of transport;
  2. Data sharing on the example of the eCMR consignment note;
  3. Possibilities for practical implementation of the present concepts;
  4. Port Community Systems and standardized data exchange;
  5. Closing Session, recommendations – how to involve the business community and regulatory bodies in the further implementation of the data sharing initiative above.


UNECE and its subsidiary body, the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT) worked on standardization of data used in international trade for decades.
